3277. Clift House Road (3)

From the time I saw my first wall by Nightwayss in Dean Lane a few years ago I have been captivated by his monkeys and their antics. Coming across this one was a bit of a nice extra surprise because it is next to a big wall that I had specifically come to photograph, but hadn’t known about this one.

There is a tenderness in this Piece which I find really rather touching. The large monkey has managed to catch his fingers in a mousetrap and is confused about it illustrated by the hamster wheel in his head. Another monkey is leaning in wondering what is going on. The second monkey has a implied caution, concern and curiosity about what is happening and seems to be well observed from how real monkeys might behave in such a situation.

The simple style of this illustration matches the wonderful ink drawings that Nightwayss has been producing for ‘Inktober’ and posting on his Instagram account. If you can, I strongly recommend you take a look at it. I love this piece.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.
